Good waterproof trousers

I have tested these waterproof trousers in steady rain for over an hour and they were really good, kept me dry. You will need to read the sizing info before ordering. The first pair I ordered were too small but had no problems exchanging them for a bigger size, very smooth process. Good product for those rainy days!

Hi Kami,

Thank you for taking some time to review your purchase.

So happy to hear they held up on those rainy days. Great point on the sizing. We do run small compared to other retailers.

We are reviewing our sizing guides to help our customers make the right choice. Very happy to see the exchange was smooth for you.

Not a waterproof

Not a water roof my trouser was wet soon after I wore it in light rain. I wore it above water resistant hiking trouser I bought from decathlon. I was soaking in water.

Hello Aysha,

Thank you for your feedback :) Apologies the waterproofing wasn't suitable.

I will pass your feedback onto our design team.

We hope to inspire you next time.

Really great rain pants

These have been excellent. Very good at repelling the water. The pants themselves are easy to put on and off. Really love the large leg opening at the bottom, that is very easily closed up with the velcro.

Awesome purchase!

Bought this waterproof pants for an overnight hike where temperatures ranged from -6 to 15 C degrees. This pants saved my life as it was raining and they protected me from the water while keep me warm. Very good against the wind too, even though it was not a strong wind. Fast dry too

Great product!

I bought this waterproof trouser when cycling, unfortunately the size small was slightly too small on my waistline, I am a size 10 but struggled to get it through my hips so will definitely get a size up.

Not true to size

I usually wear a small but the small was unbelievably tight -- not what you would expect from 'over-trousers'

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic


  • 100% Polyurethane

Waterproofing of the garment

This garment has been shower-tested using 60 liters of water/sqm/hour for 2 hrs. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower. The fabric of these overpants has water-repellent properties:this is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. As a result, the fabric does not soak up water & stays light & breathable. The water-repellent effect is achieved by using a treatment applied to the outer surface of the fabric. In addition, we sealed 100% of the seams

How to maintain the waterproofing of your jacket in the long-term

In order to maintain good waterproofing, the fabric's water-repellent properties must be reactivated: we recommend doing this every 3 washes or after a dozen uses in the rain. After washing, the product must be rinsed thoroughly and then the water-repellent property is easily reactivated by warming the fabric: either in your tumble dryer or with a hair dryer, for example, over a relatively short period. You will find all our advice in the instructions of this product data sheet.

Measurement of the waterproof rating expressed in mm or schmerber

We measure the resistance of a fabric to water pressure expressed in mm of water column (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with an impermeability of 2000 mm therefore resists a pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water

Component breathability

To find out if a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance RET (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity can escape, hence the higher the fabric's breathability. RET<9 = extremely breathable fabric 920 = little or no breathability

Our impact on the environment

On a scale from A to E, this jacket was given a score of A. The environmental impacts of our products are calculated over their entire lifecycle. A score is given to each product in order to identify the most eco-friendly products within a particular product family (T-shirts, pants, backpacks). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products. For more information, go to:

Making dyes more eco-friendly

Our teams work to find innovative processes that reduce water consumption or water pollution during the production process. The "dope dye" (bulk dying) process saves up to 60% of water and significantly reduces the amount of Co2 emitted. This also reduces color fading over time. As of 2019, we are now using this new procedure on these over-pants.

How should i choose my waterproof jacket according to my sports discipline and the intensity of my physical activity?

During sports, the extent to which we perspire depends on the intensity or duration of the physical activity. If the breathability of the fabric is not adapted to your type of physical activity, the perspiration vapor condenses inside the overpants. You feel damp inside: this is condensing perspiration vapor, rather than rain getting inside. You therefore need to choose overpants according to your type of physical activity. This model is designed for a 1-day at a rate of 3 mph max.


Our overpants come with a 2-year guarantee. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your nature hikes. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still continuing!



Product testing

It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up & designed Quechua products. We test them in the laboratory & in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable & waterproof. Whether it is in forests, on the coast or in the countryside in rainy weather, etc., we cover as many different paths as possible. These experiences were highly beneficial for us, allowing us to hear your feedback and start thinking about our future collections!
